The next time you inspect your home for energy loss. Yes, consider those items left plugged in while not in use and look to your windows, too. We all count on windows to let in light, fresh air and warmth from the sun. The quality of windows in a home can contribute to its level of energy efficiency – or lack of it.

Just as we aim to turn off lights before leaving a room, or adjust the thermostat when leaving for work, installing or maintaining energy-efficient windows can make a big difference in your home - and your wallet.

Heat or air conditioning can easily escape a home through glass windows or any openings. It’s possible to minimize this effect, and the price tag associated with it, by replacing older windows with new, quality-installed and energy efficient windows.

All the windows custom-manufactured at Wallside Window’s factory contain a Low-E - or low emissive - technology. And that means a lot to the homeowners we meet. Just ask Chief of Staff Adam Blanck, of Wallside Windows.

“High-quality, properly-installed windows improve energy efficiency all year long,” he said.

In any season, Blanck noted, energy efficient windows ensure a safer, more comfortable and environmentally-friendly home. Low-E windows will help regulate temperature that keep families comfortable despite the weather outside. It’s a technology Wallside Windows has used since it was first introduced in the 1980s as Ford Sunglas HR.

  Installing windows made to keep heat in during the winter and out during the summer is good for your home, and the environment.

Installing windows made to keep heat in during the winter and out during the summer is good for your home, and the environment.

During the hot summer months, Low-E coated glass deflect sunlight to trap hot air outside and protect cool air flowing indoors. New windows also happen to be easier to maintain, keep clean, and open wide to let fresh air into the home.

The coating technology for Low-E glass uses safe and pure minerals like silver, titanium and zinc, applied in layers of raw glass. Come winter, it ensures heat is sealed indoors. It’s the perfect way to minimize cooling and lighting costs at home. Homeowners can live comfortably in the confidence they are minimizing energy usage.
